Text G.

Medicine is a very complex field. In the past, a doctor could learn almost all that we knew about medicine. Now that is impossible. So after finishing medical school, young doctors choose what kind of doctor they wish to be. After school, they usually do more years of training to learn about the kind of medical specialty which they want to do.

Some doctors try to learn some about all of the different subjects of medicine and how to treat all patients. These kinds of doctors are called 'primary care' doctors. Sometimes they are also called 'general practitioners.'

There are other doctors who are also 'primary care' doctors. Pediatricians are primary care doctors, but only for children.

Some gynecologists do primary care, but for women only.

Other doctors are called 'specialists'. This means they have learned more about certain types of medical care. For example, a dermatologist is a doctor who knows more about the skin and diseases of the skin. A psychiatrist is a doctor who knows more about mental diseases like depression and schizophrenia

There are many different specialties in medicine. However, there are two main categories: "Medicine" and "Surgery." "Medicine" refers to the practice of non-operative medicine. "Surgery is operative medicine. There are some specialties of medicine that do not fit into either of these categories, such as radiology, pathology, anesthesia, etc.
